[ cheers and applause ] >> larry: okay. all right. so i do have a question.
what's happening with the unblackening? ♪ >> larry: tonight, mexicans. you say mexi-can, donald trump says mexi-can't. >> oh, yes on his plane he handed me his immigration plan. about an eight page plan, he wants to end the automatic right of citizenship for anyone born in the country. that's probably the biggest news in the plan. >> larry: no probably about it, chuck. i don't care if trump's immigration plan reveals the true identity of the zodiac killer. this is huge news. >> so to be cheer, okay, right now if you are born in this country you are a citizen. that's it. but according to trump, birthright citizenship is a magnet for illegal immigration and we need to end it.
>> larry: guys, come on, you know donald has completely thought this through. >> we are going to keep the families together. we have to keep the families together. >> so you from going to send them out. >> they have to go. >> what if they have no place to go. we will work with them. they have to go. >> larry: they have to go? what is he going to do? like catapult the children over the border? that doesn't even make sense. >> larry. >> larry: oh, my gosh! >> larry! >> larry: it's donald trump in his mini chopper. >> that's right. >> larry: oh, my gosh. >> larry, please, please. what do you want? >> i am here to tell you that catapulting children over the border is a very great idea that i already had. >> larry: wait. so you actually want to catapult mexican children over the border? >> larry, if i may demonstrate, bring it in, boys. >> larry: all right. what is this? >> it is a little demonstration i set up for you. >> larry: all right.
so what is it? >> basically what you are looking at right now, you are looking at a trump designed mexican baby catapult, larry. and that wall right there, that wall represents the mexican border of. >> larry: this is insane. >> larry do, me a favor. take that illegal brown child and put it in the catapult. go ahead. >> larry: i am not going to put the brown child in the catapult! >> calm down, larry. look, it is not actually an illegal brown child. it is just a simulation. and it is a very humane thing. just put the child in the luxurious catapult. >> larry: all right, all right. fine. i will put the child in the luxurious catapult. all right. so. >> trump made it. it is the best. >> larry: okay. i believe it. all right. >> that's right. that's how they go. now flip the switch. >> larry: flip the switch. all right. oh! >> don't worry about it. it is an illegal baby. that's fine.
flip it. >> larry: oh. >> there you go. >> hey, larry you just made america great again. great job. >> larry: get out of here. donald trump, everyone. we will be right back. >> larry: go, go, go. i can't believe you made me do that. >> making me catapult mexican babies over -- now i know -- oh, thank you. now i know this -- there we go. now, i know this all seems crazy, but even some republican candidates are jumping on the luxurious trump train. >> senator lindsey graham telling cnn monday the birthright policy needs to be changed. >> louisiana governor bobby jindal writing on twitter we need to end birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants. scott walker also supports ending birthright citizenship. >> larry: quick optics, tip, scott walker. when the policy you want to end
is going to lead to 0 a, minorities being rounded up and sent somewhere you might want to lower your arm. >> now to be fair, the republican establishment does not want to be having this conversation. jeb exclamation point. and marco rubio have both said they are not in favor of changing this law. but jeb is married to a mexican immigrant, and marco rubio is latino himself. so either they are more attuned to issues or they just have -- what is that thing called? oh, yeah, basic human empathy. i always forget that. all right. okay. all right. here is the thing. even bill o'reilly thinks trump has gone too far. >> then you say well we have to have mass deportation. that is not going to happen because the fourteenth amendment says if you are born here you are an american. >> bill, i think you are wrong about the fourteenth amendment.
>> larry: i never thought i would say this, trump, but bill o'reilly is correct! [ cheers and applause ] >> larry: you know what, donald trump i need to take you to knowledge college, all right let's do that. >> all right. here now it is knowledge college. >> so birthright citizenship was always a part of the common law of the yiewrks it was part of our dna, like george washington stuffed crust pizza and the fast and furious movies. but then in 1857 the supreme court handed down the dred scott decision, not their best work. it kind of like their tokyo drift. it's the embarrassing one they would like everyone to forget. now because the dred scott decision said that african americans had no citizenship
rights, whether by birth or otherwise, and then between 1857 and 1868 some stuff happened. by the way, after the stuff, congress took up the issue of citizenship and just not worried about the freed slaves, senator a the donald trufer of the day the naturalize the gypsies born in the country to which trumbull responded a child of a asiatic is just as much a citizen as the child of a european. >> asiatic? oh, racist language, even when you are not trying to be racist you somehow never let me down. >> but lyman was right and this is the debate that led to the passage of the fourteenth
amendment which ebb shrined, enshrined birthright citizenship into law. and craziest of all, the fourteenth amendment was a republican idea, it was something they got completely right the first time, like healthcare exchanges and hating john edwards. but now it's under attack. this country wouldn't be what it is if the children of freed slaves, chinese laborers, irish and italian immigrants and the families of donald trump, bobby jindal and scott walker had not all benefited from birthright citizenship. if you are born here, that's it. okay? [ cheers and applause ] >> larry: okay? you don't have to live in the shadows. you don't have to worry about deportation, and no one can ask you to prove your heritage. well, unless they are insane. we will be right back.

here. all right, all right. but seriously, though, what is mississippi worried about? are they concerned that gay parents might threaten their record as ranking last in child well-being? okay. now here it is, tell us why mississippi is dying on this hill, please welcome mississippi state legal counsel, beechum grady. [ cheers and applause ] > >> why, thank you for having me, larry. >> larry: okay. you are welcome, beechum. so why doesn't mississippi want gay couples to adopt? >> larry, mississippi isn't anti-gay. it's simply pro-yesterday. >> larry: pro-yesterday? what does that mean? >> look, larry. mississippi is just trying to rebrand itself from the hospitality state to the nostalgia state. >> larry: the nostalgia state? >> that's right, because we want to be the one place in america where the good old days of the
1950's never ended. where your biggest concern isn't global warming or isis, but how many penny colas you can sneak from old man johnson at the old five and dime, right? now doesn't that sound nice, larry? >> larry: well, yeah. it sounds pretty good when you put it like that. but what does that have to do with banning gay adoption. >> calm down. now, larry, if you go back far enough, gay doesn't exist yet. >> larry: what? >> larry, that is simple science. now, listen. >> larry: it is not science. >> so we are not anti-gay. we are simply pre-gay. >> larry: wait. did you say pre-gay? >> that's right, larry. after all, it's adam and eve not adam and steve. >> larry: okay.
that's not true. look, first of all, gay people existed in the 1950's. what about rock hudson? >> you take that back, larry! >> larry: why? why should i take it back. >> you are talking about future rock hudson. now here in mississippi, rock hudson is still a man's man. >> larry: yeah, that's what i was saying, he was a man's man. [ cheers and applause ] >> larry, don't you twist my words with your northern trickery. >> larry: it is not trickery. >> besides, everybody knows it's christmas eve, not christmas steve. >> larry: christmas steve? look, the fifties were not a perfect time for anyone, especially gay people. you didn't see them because they had to stay in the closet. >> larry you know what i keep in my closet? a fishing pole. and what i do on a nice summer day i take it down to old ray's crick and i put some trout right there in my wicker basket. which reminds me. it's basket weave, don't basket
steve. >> larry: that makes no sense at all. >> you know, larry, it's shreveport, not steve-port. >> larry: with a why are you so obsessed with the name steve i mean you can't use empty platitudes to try to disprove meaningful gay relationships and deny them basic rights to have a family. >> wow it sounds like someone's got a pet steve instead of a pet peeve. >> larry: okay. >> you are not making any sense. i can't even talk to you anymore. >> yves st. laurent, not steve st. laurent. >> larry: beechum, grady, everyone. >> it's tel aviv, not tell a steve! steve! >> larry: we will be right you can now use freeze it to prevent new purchases on your account in seconds. and once you find it, you can switch it right on again. you're back! freeze it, only from discover. get it at discover.com. they put everything in here. so, what made you switch to taco bell's a.m. crunchwrap?
